Entry 19

I arrived at the studio ready to create a new model for my stone piece.  I accomplished nothing but thinking and debating with numerous artists about what I should do with the pyramidal piece in the composition.

After lunch I sat down and did additional clay studies of the two stone elements.  I debated the pyramid form with numerous artists and my assistant Pong.  An hour after I finished the model.  Zahra from Northern Cyprus wanted to have some clay and saw what I was doing with the model.  She gave me an idea to place a smaller and more horizontal stone under the vertical stone for aesthetic and physical balance.  The pieces finally created a composition that I had wanted.  We went looking for the right stone and found two that might work.  I want to sleep on it and see how I feel in the morning.
